Hi ;

I've just upload my image as below.

ciscoasa# sh disk0
-#- --length-- -----date/time------ path
  6 5474304    Jan 01 2003 08:04:34 asa706-k8.bin
  7 5823980    Apr 26 2007 00:35:52 asdm506.bin
 10 7495680    Jul 09 2009 09:19:14 asdm512.bin
 11 6764544    Jul 09 2009 09:24:50 asa712-k8.bin
 12 6514852    Jul 09 2009 09:28:50 asdm-524.bin
 13 7598456    Jul 09 2009 09:30:46 asdm-615.bin
 14 8515584    Jul 09 2009 09:33:22 asa724-k8.bin
 15 14137344   Jul 09 2009 09:36:36 asa804-k8.bin

193003520 bytes available (62423040 bytes used)

My current image is asdm 506.bin and the boot  image is asa706-k8.bin.

Now , I'm thinking of upgrading it to the latest version by using this command rather than use the ASDM . It will go as follows :-

1 :-
ASA5510(config)# boot system disk0:/asa712k8.bin
ASA5510(config)# asdm image disk0:/asdm512.bin
ASA5510# write memory
Reload.

2.
ASA5510(config)# boot system disk0:/asa724k8.bin
ASA5510(config)# asdm image disk0:/asdm524.bin
ASA5510# write memory
Reload.

3 :-
ASA5510(config)# boot system disk0:/asa804k8.bin
ASA5510(config)# asdm image disk0:/asdm615.bin
ASA5510# write memory
Reload.

Is this doable ?

Yes very possible.

Attached is the document required to do so. Look towards the bottom of the document.

Thanks. Just wanted to be sure so I can skip the long steps that we need to follow if using ASDM .

Hi ;

I got this error when setting the asdm image.

ciscoasa(config)# asdm image disk0:/asdm-512.bin
Device Manager image set, but not a valid image file disk0:/asdm-512.bin

What version you upgrading to?  Your adsm must match your software version.
Looking at the filenames this should be asdm512.bin and not asdm-512.bin.  

Please verify the file you tftp is the same filename as the one you applying.

I've tried both and it doesn't work. Actually the original file was asdm512.bin. I just rename it as I think it will work. But then I download the original file (asdm512.bin) and run again. still it happens.

What software version you apply to your ASA.  What was the file name?  Boot file?

Hi ;

For ASA, I install asa712-k8.bin. It works. But when I try to apply the ASDM image asdm512.bin ,this thing pops up " Device Manager image set, but not a valid image file disk0:/asdm-512.bin" . So until now, I didn't save it.

Therefore my current image and asdm files still "asa706-k8.bin & asdm506.bin".
